Papillons Raw Meat & Bones Diet

It has been well over one year now that I have been feeding my dogs a diet of fresh-, unprocessed-, non-commercial food. They eat mostly meat, some dairy, form the grocery shop , our chickens supply them with fresh, free range eggs, and I also feed them some ground alfalfa/ spirulina + kelp, mixed together. Occasionally they get bone broth on their meats, and some fish. In the evening they get to entertain themselves with beef back-rib bones. They all spend plenty of time chewing on those bones; every one of my dogs has their teeth whitened by now, the tooth plaque is practically gone ; I had not to do a single tooth scale at the veterinarian in the last year, and I saved (in my case of having multiple dogs) thousands of dollars on the appropriate vet bills, not to mention, that I by-passed the danger of death caused by anesthesia, of which Papillon dogs are very susceptible to.

All that said, I do realize, that there are plenty of you out there, who would love to feed a better quality  food, but have a hard time to handle raw food; especially organ meat.

It is nice to know, that by now there are plenty of  sites on the internet, who offer a seemingly better quality frozen raw food; all prepared and packaged for you.
Make sure they offer USDA graded food (human food), nothing less.
Here is a site, which I recently got pointed out to, and I have to say, I was impressed.
For an owner with one, or two Paps it should be easily affordable, and you don't have to do much of the work.
Here the link to their web site. (I do not promote this site, I just think that this might be a good alternative to the home prepared meal)
Of course there are other sites, just Google!
You might be able to prepare some @ home, and  order only the items you don't want to mess with it.
Make sure you read (again) my home menu page.
